Flat Rock, NC

 This weekend we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and take a drive in the mountains to see the changing leaves. It was gorgeous! I think one more week and it will be perfect. This picture below is on the historic site where Carl Sandburg once lived. This picture was in one piece until I decided to edit a spot which turned into an even bigger spot right in the middle of the photo. This also happens to be the only photograph that Justin has shown an interest in. Did I mention that I deleted it from my camera? :( Oh well, you get the gist...it was really pretty.

His land seemed to go on forever! We only covered a small portion of it but decided to return another day with our hiking shoes on!

We ate lunch at Flat Rock Village Bakery which is behind this store. I am still totally baffled by the name "Wrinkled Egg". (It actually kind of creeps me out.) The food at the bakery was delicious!! We plan on going back and buying a few of their freshly baked loaves of bread.

This little guy just happened to catch my eye. Luckily he didn't mind posing while I took ten pictures trying to capture his cuteness.

These are just a few more shots of the grounds at Carl Sandburg's house. You wouldn't know it from the pictures but there were a lot of people roaming around. We decided we would be able to write some pretty amazing poetry too if this was our land.

I just love getting to explore new places with him :)


  1. I just love all photos of anything Fall!

  2. I may actually be able to shed some light on the name of that place, 'The Wrinkled Egg'. When one of our chickens holds an egg in too long, the shell actually forms differently than normal. Instead of being smooth, the surface is ripply and wrinkled. It is REALLY odd looking and only happens rarely, but maybe that's where they got the name from! :o)

  3. I am so glad that yall got to explore & see all of these special/beautiful places! We love yall & we are thankful to have you close!! :)
